Kanye West's highly-anticipated song, "All Day," isn't out, nor has anything more than a snippet of 'Ye's verse and some of the beat leaked onto the Internet. Thanks to some creative Kanye fans, multiple versions of the song have been remade and labeled as the real deal, and even though they're fake, they've been received to fire flame emojis and over 80,000 views on YouTube.

While Yeezy season appears to be upon us—Kanye is performing at the Grammys, NBA All-Star weekend, and actually releasing songs ("FourFiveSeconds") and videos ("Only One")—fans are still yearning for what they don't have. The thirst for this song is so real that even radio stations in New York City are playing the remake, with radio edits included at that. 


Kanye West New Single!! "All Day" Coming up!

To quote a post on 'Ye's fan site, KanyeToThe, "Bruh we are the only people on Earth it seems that knows it's fake." We hear you, KTT.

The timetable of just how this song came to light and what it has turned into without actually being released is pretty interesting. Fans have been waiting to hear the kind of fire and intensity that 'Ye brings out on "All Day" since they got a taste of it with Yeezus in 2013. Back in July, he talked about “All Day” with GQ, explaining that the track’s lyrics were equivalent to what Jay Z would say. “Even lyrically, I think about certain lines that I say on my new single, which is called "All Day," that usually Jay would say, but Jay's not on there. So I say, 'All day, nigga, it's Ye, nigga. Shopping for the winter, it's just May, nigga. Ball so hard, man, this shit cray, nigga. You ain't getting money unless you got eight figures.'”

Once the news of the single was out, rumors began to swirl about possible features on the song, with everyone from French Montana to just recently Travi$ Scott being thrown around. And still, with no real concrete information about the song, fans have taken the anticipation to a whole another level that makes last year's thirst for Drake's "Trophies" seem like child's play.

At this point, who knows if Kanye will ever even release the song, and honestly, he doesn't even need to, because the allure of Kanye West's "All Day" has already surpassed heights that the song might not have even been able to reach. Sources within Kanye's camp have yet to comment on the leaks and when fans can expect a finished product.
